Alma 46

Amalikiah, a very charismatic leader, wanted to destroy free government.  Captain Moroni realized that it was liberty that was at stake, and he raised the Title of Liberty and people flocked to the cause.  It is interesting to me that Moroni was considered to be a very righteous man (see Alma 48:17) even though he sought the death of Amalikiah.  Liberty, it seems, is that important to God’s Plan of Salvation.  Let us, as Moroni encouraged his people (v. 27), stand fast in the faith of Christ to preserve our own important liberty from the ultimate captor, sin.
